Keep a watch out for Liam Byrne (if selected) He's come from nowhere really but was impressed with him at Hull last week.

Travelled to widnes to watch this game. Are Wigan at full strength? Not very impressed with first half. Seen better players playing local u18

No I believe they've left a few players out as they play Leeds next week.

It wasn't a lot better was it? I suppose Wigan will take the win 18 - 12 but it was difficult to watch. The tall Widnes 11 cause Wigan a lot of problems on the edges.
Sadly for Widnes Liam Walsh looks a shadow of the player he was a couple of years back.
Joe Shorrocks was very good for Wigan and provided the spark they needed in the 2nd half, it also helped when they moved Green back into the halves to partner Smith.

A wins a win lol. Yes shorrocks the stand out. Was expecting a better game though. Still think there are better players at local u18 clubs.

It must be frustrating at this level. About the only time you see a truly full strength team is in the final. Otherwise you have a lot of younger players who need game time and your stars often get shifted out on DR/loan. You are unlikely to see the same team two games running. Having said that some of our older lads looked a bit off the pace. One tackle on Kibula was a peach and Widnes bombed a hatfull of chances. I agree about Shorrocks looking strong but we need to remember that he got a chance last year just because it seems policy to bring the younger lads into the team.

With it being a three year age group at academy level, it's a difficult decision for the clubs. Last year we sent a young team to Widnes in the early stages and lost, fortunately today we scraped home.

Just watched Darrell Gouldings post match interview on Wigan t.v. Very realistic appraisal.
